Replace the Maryland Frederick County Public Schools weather evaluation system.

Maryland's Frederick Public County Schools weather evaluation system needs to be replaced. The evaluation team and the superintendent are making outrageous decisions. Students, teachers, and parents, could all agree that this is a problem that needs to be fixed.
On the 20th of March, 2018, a school bus near Thurmont crashed into a creek, due to severe snow and weather. If the evaluation team were to be logical and rational about this, a problem occurring could be easily avoided. None of the students were on the bus at the time, but the bus was totaled and FCPS paid a price. Parents were angered, since if the children were on the bus at the time, there would've definitely been injuries. https://www.fredericknewspost.com/public/bus-crashes-into-creek-parents-angered-by-fcps-handling-of/article_ebb9a82f-edc2-5911-bc75-d45de72e2246.html
During the early March of 2018, FCPS closed due to winds. This was a smart choice, but still left some people questioning. Other days and mornings, there was black ice on the road, snow piling up, and it was almost freezing temperatures. The evaluation team decided to do a "2 hour-delay". Many of the parents kept their children home, with many of the walkers in danger of injury. https://wtop.com/weather-news/2018/03/batten-hatches-high-winds-breeze-dc-area/slide/1/
In all honesty, the schools should focus on educating our future workers. But when we put them in danger, we risk the result of injury, criticism, and the education of these children.
